Darren Hayes has been issued with a formal caution following his recent arrest on suspicion of racial abuse.

Darren admitted he argued with a member of staff at the Busaba Eathai restaurant, but denied the row had a racist element.

“I could never think, let alone utter a racist remark,” Darren said on his website.

“As a gay man, I find the notion of discriminating against a human being because of race, gender or sexuality to be abhorrent. It goes against everything I have stood for.”

He added that “any notion of racism had been ruled out” by police, but according to the BBC a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police would not confirm this.
